Tip-Speed Ratio

Tip-speed ratio is the ratio of the
speed of the rotating blade tip
to the speed of the free
stream wind.
There is an optimum angle of
attack which creates the
highest lift to drag ratio.
Because angle of attack is
dependant on wind speed,
there is an optimum tip-speed
ratio

Where,
Ω = rotational speed in radians /sec
R = Rotor Radius
V = Wind “Free Stream” Velocity
